The girl who had never been to a birthday party can finally say, “I partied.”
She talked about going to her friend’s birthday party since the day she opened the invitation.
She was so excited and joined right in with the girls.
With a *teeny* bit of Mummy’s help, she made jewelry with her friends. A tiara…
…and a jewelery box, coloured orange, dotted with gems
….and a bracelet (which she refuses to take off).
Curious about the Princess cake, before I could stop it, she stuck a tiny finger in the icing.
Clearly, she was hungry as she happily sat (in one spot!) and ate pizza and beamed.
Then out came the cake. And where there is cake, there are bound to be candles.
This kid loves the flicker of a flame.
Not like that. She associates birthday candles with the promise of good times.
As the birthday girl got ready to make a wish, Avery inched closer…
….until she had positioned herself right next to the cake. Up front and centre.
I worried she might try to blow out the candles. But she didn’t. She let the birthday girl blow them out while she made her wish. Avery didn’t need to make one anyway. Hers already came true.
